Texting's 'cool 'younger cousin, WhatsApp, has introduced a new feature which is set to change the game - if the game we're specifically talking about here relates to the number of people you can video call at once.
They have added an option which allows you to create group video or audio calls featuring up to four people. If you're wondering how to make group video calls in WhatsApp, then you sir/madam, have come to the right place. Allow me to elucidate.
To make a group call, through either audio or video, you first just make a call as normal and then select 'add participant', which will appear on the top-right corner of the screen. You can then select which contact you would most like to repeatedly accidentally talk over in an increasingly stilted conversation.
The update had been announced at a Facebook developer conference in May and was rolled out for both Android and iOS on July 30.
It has been specifically engineered to work under a variety of network conditions, meaning that users will not necessarily need perfect network conditions to conduct four-way video or chat calls.
